1) 6 drops to concrete floor from 1.5m, 1 drop per side.
2) The time is measured under configurations: Wi-Fi turned on/WEP, standard backlight, disabled all power saving, disable PDA sleeping & no data traffic. Actual battery performance depends on POS application & data traffic.  Some best tuned POS applications could run 6 hours / 12 hours (standard / extended battery, WF35) in live environment. However, it is well known that RDP/TSC application may drain battery more quickly and thus good power management is critical to a sensible RDP PDA solutions.
